The City of Wilmington is partnering with the Food Bank of Delaware to bring the Food Bank’s Mobile Food Pantry to the city this week.
On Tuesday, Oct. 29, the Mobile Food Pantry will distribute free fresh fruit, vegetables, beans, rice, dairy and other products to residents who register for the event. Those who register will receive food products for as long as supplies last. There is no guarantee that the giveaway items will be available for those who wait to register at the event, according to a news release.
To pre-register, residents must call Lanean Gilmore at 576-3775.
Pre-registered residents can pick up their free food at the Food Bank Mobile Unit, which will be parked on West Sixth Street between North Madison and North Monroe streets in Wilmington from 11 a.m. until supplies last next Tuesday. A Delaware I.D. is required. Residents are asked to please bring their own bags, boxes or cart to carry their items, according to a news release.
Food distribution will take place rain or shine. You can access information about the Food Bank of Delaware at fbd.org/program/mobile-pantry.
